AFTER a shaky start to their Moralee division campaign, a pair of hard fought away win has catapulted the Solihull Barons up to fifth place in the division.
On Saturday the Barons gained their second win of the week thanks to a 7-3 win at Sheffield Senators and the following day the Barons recorded a 5-3 win Billingham Stars to cap off a fine weekend.
Tom Soar opened the scoring for the Barons on Saturday in just under two minutes of the puck drop and by the middle of the game the Barons had put the puck in the net no fewer than five times with Soar getting another along with Rob Eley, Tomas Janak and Niklas Ottosson.
A high sticks incident saw Solihull’s Josh Bruce thrown form the game and the remainder of the tie would be dominated more by penalties disrupting the Baron’s scoring flow. Niklas Ottosson would however complete his hat-trick before the game end.
On Sunday the Barons took the long bus ride North to take on the Billingham Stars and would bring home another two points with a hard won victory.
The Barons quickly imposed their style of play on Billingham and by the half hour mark the visiting side were leading 3-1, thanks to a pair of goals from Josh Bruce and a single from linemate Joe Henry.
The Stars however dug deep and with ten minutes to go had pulled things back level. It would be Solihull who would emerge triumphant, Niklas Ottosson and Tom Soar getting a pair of late goals for the Barons.
The Barons have another busy weekend coming up starting with another trip to Sheffield to face Barons on Saturday and on Sunday they face the same side in Solihull.
